The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.
A drive-through Community Resource Center will be open from 12:00 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Wednesdays throughout the months of June and July. Bilingual staff is available at the Learning Services Center, 401 S. Pratt Parkway in Longmont. El Centro de Recursos Comunitario de autoservicio estará abierto los miercoles de 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. durante los meses de junio y julio. Personal bilingüe estará disponible en el Centro de Servicios de Aprendizaje, 401 S. Pratt Parkway en Longmont.
Our next PTO meeting will be on Monday, April 9, from 6-7p. A guest speaker from Grassroots St Vrain will be presenting about school funding in Colorado. We will also be discussing plans for Carnival and Teacher Appreciation Week. Ideas and volunteers are needed. Coordinators have been identified for each event, but they could definitely use some additional support. As usual, childcare for children ages 3 years and up will be available.
The PTO will be hosting this year’s BOGO Book Fair before and after school on April 23rd-26th. Volunteers will be needed during set up, sales, and tear down. Please contact the board if you are interested in helping out. Please note that because we are offering “get one free” books, the BOGO fair does not generate money for the school or the PTO. Our goal is to get books into kids’ hands in a way that is as affordable as possible for families. Due to this, vouchers are unfortunately not available for BOGO Book Fair volunteers.
Be on the lookout in late April and May for opportunities to order a copy of the yearbook and to pre-order tickets for this year’s Carnival and school supplies for next year.
Finally, as the end of the school year marches ever closer, it is time for us to start thinking about candidates for the 2018-19 PTO Executive Board. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact a board member in person or by email. All Fall River parents/guardians are PTO members by default and are therefore eligible for consideration. Elections will be held at our May meeting.
